Why is Alex special?
Netherlands device_bad 
I'm trying to figure out why the hype around him, not saying he's a bad IGL or anything but there has to be something that would make Cloud9 spend so much money on him, and now one of the best teams of all times in CSGO are considering him. He was an IGL on Vitality for a bit yeah but it doesn't seem they amounted to much, so what makes organizations appreciate Alex as an IGL so much?

he is free Vitality hasnt been better since he left (unless XTQZZ calls and even then less tournament wins). C9 was consistently improving after woxic got kick. him and MSL are the best igl options (free ones) for any team aiming for top 10+. Name any other real igl.

you honestly think apex was igling? It was XTQZZ you saw this amazing apex igling in Cologne and recently where Vitality have been not too great. btw 2020 vitality only won 2 tournaments. with alex it was 3.

Coaches not allowed to IGL on lan. There are staff moderating games so they can only speak during timeouts.

Yes? In online TO's can't check if coach talk or not, on LAN environment there are fucking admins behind your back
2021-07-23 16:28
Yes, which makes absolute sense, as during the online era coaches were allowed to speak all the time, during rounds aswell. Whereas on LAN (Cologne) he is only allowed to speak during tactical timeouts. :)
2021-07-23 16:29
not cologne other than timeouts and I believe in RMRs coaches are banned completely by Valve

2021-07-23 14:25
So basically he's the only option, not the best fit/super qualified IGL in comparison to other more based IGL's

There isn't many good international igl's on the market, Alex seems to be the best option out of them.
2021-07-23 14:11
Because here is no competition in cs go, no more good IGL at this moment is free.
2021-07-23 14:11
2021-07-23 14:11
Many previous teammates have praised him, he is said to be easy to work with and is a pretty good fragger. Also there aren't many other options.

The lack of IGL's that have any experience at big tournaments I guess, now that LANs maybe comeback the online era could be over

Hype has nothing to do with it. ALEX is IGL, played in tier-1 scene, has some experience, not too old. Is he bad or good ,we will see later. Fnatic have been hanging out in a shit for a good time, so they have to do something, if they want to return.

he isnt special he is just a free igl that is good lol he would still be with vitality rn if he didnt leave cus of travel issues and we all know why c9 didnt work out so what other basis do we have to go off? better to give him the benefit of the doubt and let him try rebuild this dead fnatic team. also for anyone thats saying hes good cus of zywoo, if you’ve actually watched cs for the past 7 years you’d know that one player can’t win tournaments lmao

If you look at the IGL market, Alex excels. He is free agent only 25 y/o, good english, he has enough experience and fragging wise he is not terrible. And C9 with a woxic had a good strategic foundation.
2021-07-23 14:22
Tbh I think the reason why he will probably be joining fnatic is not because he has sick strats or something. It is because his individual performance is clearly better than most IGL’s right now
2021-07-23 14:24
name better igl they could get?

Because he reeks of fart, which is an advantage now when LAN is back. Why? so the enemy team gets psyched and performs bad. No need to thank me.

He was solid tier 1 igl in vitality. Idk what is so hard to understand. You guys dont remember what kind of washed up players he had in that team
2021-07-23 14:27
ZywOo carried him so people think that he is a good igl

proven igl + free agent
2021-07-23 17:46
He was the second best player in Vitality while being the IGL and they were a solid top5 team. They only got better after removing him because they went off the strats they did build with xtqzzz and remember that the online era allowed coached to be behind and talk during rounds... before the ruling came out that they would not be allowed in some tournaments. So apEX had less work to do. After that they had to work without XTQZZZ calling behind and we all saw Vitality fall off dramatically. Everyone on Vitality praised ALEX because he was hard working, hard fragging, he always had new ideas, he was really open to ideas... We all know why c9 didnt work out.
